I did it cause i was just tired of having the same old hair for my whole life. I decided like u i wanted to have a haircut i actually could take pride in and to do something slightly out of character and wild. I never did it for attention or to get popularity.
i got mine just to get one i just told my aunt to cut my hair off and she did haha
i dunno i dont like using it for attention i got it because i wanted it you know?
I originally shaved off my hair over 8 years ago when i wasnt even 10 yet because my mother told me that if i wore a skirt to my sisters wedding i could get any hair cut i wanted and its a family thing that made me strive for my mohawk i have. I grew up in a poor family who's traditions where a split of German and Russian trying to get by in the U.S. and the music i was influenced by really helped. I grew up listening to Punk music along with German industrial along with some russian folk music. But i got mine for me because of the bond of my families morals and the traditions we've held onto since my mum had a good childhood growing up in L.A. where punk bands thrived amazingly in her days. But it wasnt for attention.
its pretty weird though since i am the only person in my school with a mohawk, on top of that im female and when put up properly instead of 5'3" im 5'11"
I always thought mohawks, spikey hair, bright hair etc was cool as a kid.
I'd see a guy on the street with a mohawk or see some punks on tv and thought it was the coolest thing ever.
I remember in elementary school some of the girls making fun of me on the playground because i told them that i wanted a blue mohawk, a leather jacket, and a nose ring. :]
so i guess my answer is... its just been something ive always been attracted to.
